If a trademark registration is not renewed on time, this could lead to the loss of your trademark rights. It is therefore important to make sure that you always renew and update your trademark registration on time. NLO Shieldmark can help you with all types of renewals of your trademark registration.


Renewal deadline

It is very important to know what the renewal deadline is for your trademark. In most countries a trademark registration is valid for a period of 10 years. After the expiry of this period, as the trademark holder you have the right to renew the trademark registration. A trademark registration may be renewed an unlimited number of times.


Renewal database

NLO Shieldmark has an extensive, state-of-the-art database for monitoring renewal deadlines. When you use our trademark registration service, your trademark registration is automatically entered in this renewal database for you. This means that you will always be warned in advance before the renewal deadline expires.

Fake invoices

Fake invoices are unfortunately a well known problem among trademark owners. A fake invoice is a misleading invoice (or letter) which reffers to a trademark, design, patent or patent application. A payment is requested for a publication in a register or to extend the validity of a registration.They use names like Worldwide database or Trademarks and Patents, Euro IP Register, International Patent & Trademark Database.
